Several Friday evenings each month, Princess Night volunteers share a message of God’s love, hope, and restoration with every precious Princess encountered.
Through consistent outreach,
relationships are built and trust is established; ultimately offering each woman an opportunity to escape the bondage of sex slavery and embrace physical and spiritual freedom that once could have only been imagined.

The 24/7 rescue hotline number
can be called any time day or night;
and anyone seeking help in leaving
“the life” will be guided by a caring hotline team member in what to expect next.
Once a call is received, the Hotline respondents coordinate Rescue Teams to pick the Princess up at a safe meeting location and transport her to one of our safe homes.
Each Rescue Team consists of a man and a woman who will ride together to the location and transport the Princess to a safe home. The man’s role is to simultaneously navigate to the safe home interceding in prayer, while the woman Rescue Team member accompanies the Princess in the back seat to effectively offer comfort, prayer and encouragement.
We have the unique opportunity to visit women in the Macon-Bibb County Jail each month. Team members in this outreach build long-term trust and relationships through personal contact that happens a couple of times each month.
This is one of the most impactful outreaches we do and the investment into these lives impact them now, in the future and for eternity.
A 24/7 rescue hotline is in operation that can be called by anyone wanting help leaving “the life”.
The hotline respondents are volunteers who have been trained to answer calls, assess each situation, offer encouragement, and walk through a brief intake process.
If the caller is in fact interested in going to a long-term program, the hotline respondents then work to coordinate with a Rescue Team to pick up and transport her to one of our safe homes.
Middle Georgia's first outreaching ministry was the Truck Stop outreach.
This outreach is different from the other missions of OOD meaning we educate truck drivers about human trafficking, as truck drivers are the eyes and ears of the highway.
Sadly, many victims are forced to
sell themselves at truck stops.
Volunteers give the truck drivers information from an organization called Truckers Against Trafficking
(www.truckersagainsttrafficking.org) and encourage them to make a difference to the women who are being trafficked.
Club Outreach is an incredible opportunity to meet women where they are, showing them the love of Christ.
Volunteers go into a Middle Georgia strip club several times a year sharing gifts, handwritten cards with our hotline number, hugs, tears and prayers.
Many relationships have been built during the past few years, and many women have purposed to leave the stripping industry because of the unconditional love shown to them.
In looking ahead to when the dream of a transitional home becomes a reality, a transition home will serve as step three to fill a gap between long-term treatment and independent living; and will provide additional support
for the women to gain skills and
confidence to make it on their own.
We envision a home environment with support staff and volunteers to guide residents through phases individually programmed for each woman. Living together will help alleviate loneliness and will provide opportunities for accountability. Our desire is for each woman to
have a mentor who will commit to walk alongside her on this journey.
